literature of domestic chaos
An interesting post, at Pish Tosh, about blogging as a form of literature of domestic chaos. Housework, she notes that Shapiro writes in a history of housewifery in the 50s, housework “evaporates and leaves no trace” – unless you write about it.
Definitely one of the appeals of blogging. You read me, therefore I am. No, an unread blog is still a blog. OK: I can find my old posts on Google, therefore I was. Nah. And I’m too sleepy to figure it out. There’s something there though, both about blogging and about personal writing and about the public and personal and the private and the political.
